How this site for Jeff came about
Years ago I got tired of every time we changed ISPs or the phone company would change names I would end up with a new email address. This was before Gmail got popular. So I decided to get a domain name and my address would never change. Jeff and I went on my back deck to think about it. We were setting out there and I said something about how I like My Back Deck, and the name came from that comment. I've had this domain name for many years now. I've used it for emails but never really for a website. I now have a screened in back porch I set on. Patsy and I were working on the videos we are creating in celebration of Jeff's life and I thought I would like to tell some of his friends the story behind some of the pictures.
Setting on the back porch drinking coffee it came to me. Why don't I use My Back Deck and tell my memories of Jeff. So Patsy and I are going to start telling some of our memories of Jeff (and maybe a little trivia about him). We're old so we can't remember everything in order, We're just going to tell them as they come to us.
Hopefully Jeff's and our friends and family will enjoy some of our memories of Jeff though out his life.
Mouse over the pictures below for some of Jeff's favorite things

It’s been hot and I was thinking back when Jeff came to visit and we went to Carters Lake. It was July 21, 2013. Jeff and his mom went swimming. I had a injured shoulder and didn’t swim that day. Now I’m glad I didn’t swim. I took out my…
